Looking Ahead

I've been laying really low with my running since The North Face race at the beginning of the month. Only been getting out running about 2 or 3 days a week. The break has been nice but I find myself beginning to get the bug to get back out on longer runs and to get back out more often.

This has also got me thinking more about my running plans for 2010. All I know right now is that I want to spend even more time in the mountains next year than I ever have before, that I only want to run races that I have never run before, and that I will be running Western States on June 26th. Other than those three things everything else is up in the air. I'm really excited to find out where these things take me.

If you are up for it after WS, come on out and run the Vermont 100 (July 17) with me! Well, you run it and then wait a few hours for me to finish. It will be my first 100 and it will be a great place for your family to come watch!

You had a great 2009, Geoff.

Best of luck to you in 2010. Your initial goals sound great.

You need any pacing or crew help for WS100, just let me know. It'd be a big highlight for me to be a small part of your success there. I'm only a short drive away from the course, so no travel or accommodations to worry about. Have a great 2010.

We agree with Boo - it would be a great place for us to come watch. Think about it.

Love,

Cool. Come out to Ohio July 31 and run the Burning River 100. It'll be easy for your Dad to pop over to Ohio from NY to crew for you. Heck, my husband and I will take you out to dinner too. A very well-organized race - you'll love it.

Geoff, you've got to get over to run the Tour Du Mont Blanc. American men have had their challenges over there, and you could be the man to put the US on the map. I think Meltzer's going back for redemption, you could follow him for 80 miles or so, and then just put the hammer down...and take down those feisty Europeans...

Ditto on the UTMB suggestion. That course seems suited to you. A fast, flat 1st 1/4 of the race, then 75 miles of mostly steep climbs/descents. And U.S. women have been kicking butt over there and 'carrying the water' for us dudes.
